#4622239 Struggling To Survive in 3s as Spriest - Tips?

Posted by Anboniwow on 25 December 2016 - 06:51 PM

I feel like it's really hard to survive vs warriors and enha shamans. Other than that I don't really have a problem with being trained by melee anymore.

I straight out accept the fact that they will have 100% uptime on me so I just pick a spot, max range from my healer and just stay there and do my pve rotation, trying to DOT everyone.


After 2-3 casts you can see when they kick; some like to kick asap<- really easy to juke, others wait till after the cast is half way<-harder to juke). You get to learn their pattern and juke easy-ish.


When I get trained by melee all game, I just save fear either defensively when they pop cds OR for swaps on healers if they push in. Vs DK comps, I just save fear for every grip.


TSG is hard but you can stay alive. Don't be greedy with dispersion.


I never lose to WD as FPS. A lot of time I don't even have to disperse. Just save fear for grip (trinket if you have to just fear them on grip).


Turbo will beat you 100%, que again.




Ret/surv is the most scripted setup ever. If your healer is orc, have him play adaptation and he will get out of every other trap. I like to have my healer play Trinket cause I feel confident dispelling every trap. If your healer gets Cycloned once, you break the script and lose. :c


Ret/DK should go for your healer, what are they doing?


You should be able to survive everything with proper cooldown rotation from you and your healer.  


I haven't played with a DK yet but I imagine he can put a lot of pressure on 2 melees if they stay on you.

Feral offheals are insanely strong.

Warlocks have retarded pve damage if they ignore him, so just don't die and get nice mind bombs/silences and the warlock will solo everything pretty much... XD


A big tip I could give you is use Mind Control a lot. On maps like sewers or Blade's Edge, I feel like a god with MC. 


Idk, I hope this helped in any way. =]

#4613905 Patch 7.1: Arena overall and Rogue

Posted by Anboniwow on 31 October 2016 - 05:04 PM

Walking dead is back and scarier than ever.


Oh and rogues got a big stamina nerf so they have much less hp than anyone else. I think they nerfed assa damage as well but it's still strong.

Also if we're talking about bugs, I really hate it when my shaman grounds a Glacial Spike but instead of canceling the damage it hits me 2 times for 2x700k.

#4594420 Shadow Priest Discussion

Posted by Anboniwow on 02 August 2016 - 11:10 AM

I wanna talk about shadow priests for 3v3 in Legion.
I'll start with PVP Talents, Normal Talents, Comps and also some general gameplay guidelines and ALSO a strange bug I found. I reported it but chances are they won't fix it rofl.

1. PVP Talents
Posted Image

1. - Medallion seems the best overall still

2. -Mind Quickness since Haste seems to be our best secondary stat

3. -I think all 3 are very viable in 3v3 here depending on what you face. I'd say Pure Shadow is going to see the most play and should be baseline, but I would go Fleeting Embrace vs dot cleaves since it heals SO much and you can pretty much line it up with every Void form.
Void Shield offers the most self healing overall but I don't see it as good as the other options in 3v3.

4. -Void Origins is what I'll go for but I am definitely going to spec Driven to MadnessT vs Dot
cleaves. It makes a huge difference.

5. -Shadow Mania seems the only viable choice for arena to me. Mind Blast has too low damage to make Psychic Link worth it imo, even with the insatnt procs. Not 100% sure.

6. -Void Shift FeelsGoodMan. Psyfiend has 10 hp and Last word DR's with other silence. Void Shift is game breaking , so obvious choice for 3v3.

2. Normal Talents

Posted Image

1. -Shadow word:Void gives you more control over your Insanity though ToF is pretty massive when it comes to executes. Note that it procs only from Damage dealt and not damage or healing, but it does increase both. Not 100% sure here but SW:Void seems nice.

2. -Body and Soul is our only mobility. It's nice in 3v3.

3. -Mind Bomb looks better than fear for a number of reasons: You don't need to be in a 8yd range to do it (which you be hard with the low mobility); You can use it to set up a fear or a polymorph or even a Mind Control; Mind Control now shares DR with Fears.

4. -You can do some really nice damage with Void Lord but the Insanity generation from Reaper of Souls makes it much better imo.

5. -Again, all 3 seem pretty OK but Shadowy Insight gives you the most Insanity overall. Sometimes I pick San'layn since it makes you deal the most Damage+Healing on the scoreboard and it's really nice vs DoT cleaves when you play Fleeting Embrace.

6. -All 3 seem good. (having choices feels weird but nice). I like Shadow Crash a bit more than Mindbender since it's more Insanity on demand which you can use either to hit Voidform, stay in Voidform longer, stop drinks, get rogues out (you need mad aiming skills and the rogue to play on min settings) and the damage is actually really good if you hit multiple targets (Protip-Vamp Embrace before you shadow crash on a Demo warlock and his 10 pets for some sick aoe heals). Mind Bender is better at keeping you in Voidform longer.

7. -Mind Spike does some really good damage and StM is maybe the best talent for PvP.... JK Legacy of the Void is the only talent I see in this tier. (Mind Spike sucks and you can't even spec StM in arena)

3. Comps
I'll need some help here since I haven't tried out many comps.

Shadow/Affliction/Resto Shaman looks the best thanks to the insane pressure, good synergy with mind bomb>Fear>Sielnce>hex and warlock decent peels.

Shadow/Demo/Resto Shaman pretty much the same, except the Demo lock has way better peels but less spread damage.

That's all I got here. Basically go with Warlocks and Resto shamans since they are the best classes in the game atm 8D

4. BASIC Gameplay

You want to DoT everything, get into Voidform and refresh your DoTs using Void Bolt. Use shadow word:Void to stay in Voidform longer.
Look for CC opportunities on healers before you hit Voidform.
You can use Mind Bomb on DPS before you use your big Void Torrent.
If you're not getting trained, Shadow Mend is probably the best off-heal in the game and I still see people not using Mind Control enough to peel.
Mind Control doesn't disconnect you anymore so #believe.

5. Prommised bug XD

I made a short video about it here:

-"Ain't no1 got time for that!"
-OK, TL;DW: If 2 priests void torrent eachother, GG you broke the game.

6. Race?

-Probably Human is still the best.
-Go Undead for bonus sexy points and Touch of the Grave is pretty JUICY actually.
-Troll does the most damage in PvE probably. Goblin is also nice cause of the 1% haste. (do they even still have that?)
-Dorf might be op if ferals and assa rogues take off, idk.

#4388300 Flameglow needs a nerf.

Posted by Anboniwow on 16 February 2015 - 09:16 AM

Where's the shadow priest passive damage mitigation? :3

When I compare my class to this on topic Flameglow+Spellsteal glyph+stealing enemy Hots on top of all the mobility, self peels and IBx2 it makes me feel like a bug :[

They are making Alter Time a 1 min cd so some people will spec into that vs burst teams that can't spam purge.
Blizz will see that Flameglow is not being used 100% of the time => nerfs will never come. #Blizzlogic

#4177945 Shadow Priest YouTube channel ^^

Posted by Anboniwow on 25 July 2014 - 12:16 PM

I was honestly expecting trolls in here for some reason :o
Thanks a lot, guys!

I have finished a really big SP guide over here:

Was wondering what do you, more experienced players, think about it? Did I mess anything up? Is it a decent guide?
Would love some feedback in that regard if anybody cares to watch it(them).
Cheers guys~!

*Also, that SP vs WAR guide is getting spam dislikes by people in Vietnam, Thailand and India... wtf :-s
